Healing Gratitude Meditation

November 18, 2022

Join Julie Potiker as she guides you through this Healing Gratitude meditation. She completes the meditation with a reading of the poem, "Mysteries, Yes", by Mary Oliver.

Truly, we live with mysteries too

marvelous to be understood.

How grass can be nourishing in the

mouths of the lambs.

How rivers and stones are forever

in allegiance with gravity

while we ourselves dream of rising.

How two hands touch and the bonds will never be broken.

How people come, from delight or the scars of damage,

to the comfort of a poem.

Let me keep my distance, always, from those who think they have the answers.

Let me keep company always with

those who say "Look!" and laugh in

astonishment, and bow their heads.

~Mary Oliver, "Mysteries, Yes"
